RNC Gossip Edition

  • Matt Drudge reports that Christie Todd Whitman and Chris Matthews were attacked by a black hooded protester at their Herald Square location. The National Debate has more on the story (with screen caps).

  • NYPD is advising that it's "hats and bats" night.

  • In a Wizbang exclusive, pictures of Al Franken's Monday confrontation on Radio Row:

    Monday evening there was an argument between Franken and a producer for the Laura Ingraham show regarding whether he had agreed to be on her program, The producer called Franken "a liar," evidentally because Franken (in his opinion) reneged on a promise to appearh on the Ingraham show. Franken called him "an asshole," then tempers flared, and push came to shove.

    Eventually Ingraham called for security. There are more pictures of the incident coming tomorrow. More details and pictures available in this update.

  • BoiFromTroy breaks the news that CNN has rejected the Log Cabin Republicans ad.

Did Franken rip all the hair off the crown of that guy's head? Or is it some kind of wicked phaser-beam-transmitted-from-glasses-lenses-through-finger effect?

If he would've got in my face, wagging his finger like that, he would'a got a Texas Sized Ass Whuppin'... for sure! Lying little hate filled prick that he is.

Joel:

I emailed the story to drudge a couple hours ago. It's up there now... maybe he found it some other way but either way you made Drudge!

Apparently, security goons ... (Below threshold)

Apparently, security goons have been tailing Franken for the past two days, keeping him from interviewing people. It doesn't surprise me that he blows his stack after all that, but he is usually a pretty laid back guy. I doubt that he had to be 'restrained' though. If any of this is true, its laughable that the crybabies had to call security on Al, instead of handling the situation themselves.

Jumbo:

"Apparently, security goons have been tailing Franken for the past two days, keeping him from interviewing people."

Right On! You tell 'em Ash. FASCIST SECURITY GOONS!

I would have thought they were there to keep AL from getting HIS ass kicked after he spewed his usual insults at evil, greedy conservatives.

"but he is usually a pretty laid back guy." WTF? AL FREAKOUT FRANKEN? Okay, wait a minute, I get it now. This was a JOKE! *whew!* You really had me going for a minute. Nifty sense of humor there, Ash.

Jay:

Drudge should be providing some linkage with regard to those pics.

He must have something against bloggers. The one time I saw him link to a blogger was after Michelle Malkin was harassed by Chris Matthews.

Paul:

I assume since Drudge has an extra pic that Kev sent it but a link woulda been nice.

ashley, you're dead wrong. We're all in the same quarters and I can see their broadcast position. They get who they can get. If none of the politician want to talk to them that's not a security issue, it's a PR handler issue.

megapotamus:

Franken is obviously the smartest man in the Demcoratic party. He knows enough to panic. Better keep the sharp objects away for the next six or eight months.

Mikey:

Actually, Al Franken has done this before. At a Dean Rally in New Hampshire in late January he tackled a heckler (the heckler was a LaRouche supporter). At that time the Laura Ingraham show was taking up a collection for an Al Franken Anger Management Fund.

That was tongue-in-cheek (I think) but Mr. Franken should seriously start considering something like that. Its easier just to tell the guy to sod off and then ignore him than go and start a fight.

jumbo, i didn't use the term 'fascist'; i know you are chomping at the bit to drop some sound bites, but it would be good for you to learn to pace yourself.

kevin, i was referring to al's evening activites, not his broadcast from radio row. he is wandering the convention floor at night, which is where he is tailed. i doubt it is for al's protection, as he has publicly body slammed people in the past, as metioned elsewhere in this thread.

Kevin:

I just wish who ever the guy was that Franken was shouting at and pointing his finger at, would have beat Franken ASS in front of every one..Franken is trying to keep up with other's like O'Reilly and failing big time..You suck Stuart Smalley!!!!!!

Mark:

Al's an a**. How about we arrainge a fight between Sean Hannity an Al Franken. I would pay to see that go down. Sean would win hands-down, I guess because Al would first have to go get permission from the UN security council.

Wow, you guys are a bunch o... (Below threshold)
Dale:

Wow, you guys are a bunch of know nothing dill holes.

As for Franken and Hannity fighting, Al would kick his ass.

What a bunch of mindless lemmings you are.
